Subsequent tamariki — section 18B criteria

Updated: 06 August 2019

The subsequent tamariki sections (18A to 18D) of the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989 outline what we must do when working with tamariki whose parents have had tamariki permanently removed from their care due to abuse or neglect in the past.

Working out whether the parent meets the criteria of section 18B determines whether the assessment needs to contain section 18A specific matters and whether an application to court must be made. This webpage outlines how to record that a person meets the criteria.
